System_WinDrives::isApiAvailable() – Checks if the API is available


require_once 'System/WinDrives.php';

boolean System_WinDrives::isApiAvailable ( void )


Checks if the API methods to read the drive list are available, and returns that.

They may not be available if the necessary extensions (win32api on PHP4, php_ffi on PHP5) are not installed on the system.

If the API is not available, the drive list is brute-force guessed. Drive types are not available in that case.

Return value

boolean - true if they are there, false if not.
